PURPOSE The aim of the study was to investigate the interaction between leisure physical activity and a BsmI polymorphism at the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene on the modulation of bone mineral density (BMD). METHODS We studied 575 unrelated healthy postmenopausal women. Lumbar spine and femoral neck BMD were measured by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA), and results were expressed as age-and-weight-adjusted (Z-score). VDR BsmI genotype was determined by polymerase reaction chain on… CONTINUE READING
